Neve Tzedek

Exploring Israel

When visiting Tel Aviv, you must take the time to explore one of its oldest districts; Neve Tzedek. Neve Tzedek was actually established 20 years before Tel Aviv; in 1887. The neighborhood was built as a way out for the Jewish families who no longer wanted to live in the overcrowded Jaffa; making it the first Jewish neighborhood outside of the old port city.

In the early 1900s, Neve Tzedek became a haven for aspiring writers and artists such as Nobel prize laureate Shmuel Yosef Agnon and artist Nahum Gutman. Sadly, Neve Tzedek fell into disrepair over time as affluent families moved away; leaving Neve Tzedek as a slum. It almost came to the point where the whole neighborhood was going to be demolished. Luckily, the preservation of some of the old buildings kept that from happening, and a beautiful restoration began. Now, Neve Tzedek is back to its former glory and is a must-see stop while exploring Tel Aviv.
